What was this event about?

People are at the heart of everything Etsy does. From their B-certified company classification to the creation of their Values and Impact team, it’s apparent that people matter most to the person-to-person online marketplace. This focus on people and community permeates everything they do, even their design work.

Randy Hunt serves as Etsy’s Creative Director, telling Etsy’s story from the visual perspective. His work even extends beyond screens as he helps design Etsy’s offline events and workspaces and advises company direction from the design perspective. In addition to his work at Etsy, Randy is the author of “Product Design for the Web,” a book that defines the best practices for modern product design design.

On May 8th, 2015 at 12:00 PM (PST), Randy will hop on his Soapbox to talk about some principles of modern product design, the role that story plays in design and what designers can learn from their users.
